Okay stay.
Great breakfast and friendly staff, well maintained shared spaces (gardens are amazing) but not a Design Hotel. You can see that the place have been remodelled with cheapish furniture, a lamp was broken in our room, side table was all scratched, no bathrobes, no wine glasses in the room. The balcony rail guard are cheap treillis so if you sit you feel like you're in prison. It's also a very family oriented place. Nothing bad with it but lot of toddlers all around.

Great stay in Melia again
Nice hotel with all facilities. Breakfast and dinner have very big selection in the buffet. Restaurant is above average. Rooms are small and starting to show wear.

Had a fantastic holiday at the Cretan Malia Park hotel. They go above and beyond to make sure you have a comfortable stay. Very friendly and approachable staff. If I had to make one small criticism is that it would be great if there was more English TV channels, especially for young children, but that wasn't dealbreaker.

One of the best hotels we have been to in the world. We spent a family vacation, 6 people in 3 WATERFRONT rooms. The rooms are clean, the service is excellent, the breakfast is varied and excellent, the pool is stunning, the whole hotel is simply decorated and stunning. Quality restaurants in the hotel. Especially Italian. The beach is perfect. It was very difficult to leave the hotel. Already waiting to arrive again. Highly highly highly recommended.
